    If you are staying dvc and getting the dining plan. Does eveyone on the dining plan have to have park tickets

    Hi Shannon,

    As a huge fan of the Disney Dining Plan, I love the fact that I can add it to my Disney Vacation Club Resort reservation without the need to purchase Theme Park Tickets. Therefore, if you wish to add the Disney Dining Plan to your Disney Vacation Club Resort reservation, that is certainly possible.

    All Disney Dining Plan options, including the Disney Quick-Service Dining Plan, the Disney Dining Plan, and the Disney Deluxe Dining Plan (depending on your family's eating preferences), are available to be booked with Disney Vacation Club Resort reservations. While there is no need for any guests on your reservation to have purchased Walt Disney World Theme Park Tickets in order to purchase the Disney Dining Plan, there are a number of restrictions.

    First, every guest on your Disney Vacation Club Resort reservation must purchase the Dining Plan. Secondly, all guests on the reservation must purchase the same Disney Dining Plan out of the three possible choices of plans. Finally, the Disney Dining Plan must be purchased for all nights of your stay; it is not possible to purchase the Disney Dining Plan for only a portion of your stay.

    To add the Disney Dining Plan, the Disney Vacation Club member who booked the reservation in question can do so online by simply accessing the Vacation Center within the Disney Vacation Club Member website, accessing your Resort reservation in question under "Travel Plan Details", and then selecting "Add a Dining Plan". Alternatively, you can contact Member Services at (800) 800-9800. Note that Disney Dining Plans must be booked at least 48 hours prior to check-in and payment must be made in full at the time of booking.

    Bon Appetit!
